Man that is a bummer!Spare magazine costs and availability would by my drawbacks to consider , but the asking price is pretty good. Does it shoot well? Check bore with a scope if possible. I bought a Martini MKII sight unseen and it shoots about 3/4-1" @ 50 yards, I was expecting better but took the chance online. Once I cleaned it up and inspected it the bore with 60+ years of corrosion looks like molten lava ran through it. I am amazed it shoots that well with how bad the bore actually is.
